Cass Junior High School Learning Center
Welcome to Cass Junior High School's Learning Center
“Where the Focus is on the Child"
The Cass Junior High Learning Center provides library and informational services to students, staff, and the school community. It strives to develop the skills necessary to meet the life-long informational needs of students, while encouraging them to develop a true love of reading. Resources to achieve these goals include an organized, complete, diverse, and current collection of learning resources as well as access to the Indian Prairie Public Library and other informational sources.
The Library Media Center is a busy place. Classes, small groups, and individuals utilize the library resource for research and for locating independent reading materials. The Library Media Center staff collaborates with teachers to coordinate multi-disciplinary units and school-wide curriculum projects.
Our library operates with a fully automated catalog and circulation system. Students may access library materials from the computer network in the library, from classroom computers, and from home. There are approximately 11,000 holdings in the Learning Center. The collection includes fiction and non-fiction books, biographies, reference materials, periodicals, instructional videos, DVDs, and CDs.
In addition to the extensive collection of print material, our students have access to a world of information at their fingertips through a variety of web-based materials, allowing for the most up-to-date and accurate information. We have a number of computers that allow students to continue work outside the classroom, individually or collaboratively.
Books that are checked out by students are for a 14 day period. Books that are 7 days late will result in an e-mail notification to family and a detention for missing property. 14 days after the book is due, it will be deemed lost. At this point, the students will be responsible for paying the cost of the book if not found. Students that have missing property from the library will not be allowed to check out any books until the book is returned or the fine is paid. If a book is found within the same school year, it can be returned to the school for a refund of the price of the book.
